Volunteers with DanceSyndrome play a vital role in helping us to achieve our mission of transforming lives for people with learning disabilities.

There are many ways to volunteer with DanceSyndrome from supporting our weekly community dance sessions, providing pro bono advice and guidance with our strategy and business operations, joining our Board of Trustees or raising money and awareness of our work.

In return, volunteering with DanceSyndrome offers benefits in abundance from being part of the incredible DanceSyndrome family and meeting and connecting with some of the most inspirational and motivational individuals you will ever meet, supporting your physical and mental health, providing the opportunity to meet new friends, to support and advance your career, to take you to places and experiences you never imagined you’d be a part of and to bring pure joy, fun and fulfilment to your life.

Supporting our Dance Sessions & Events

Do you have time to attend our weekly community dance sessions which are held across Lancashire? We’re looking for volunteers to support the sessions, take payments from participants and to help them to get the most out of their experience.

We are also looking for volunteers who can attend events and help with several things including collection buckets, selling merchandise, costumes or back-stage at performances.


Supporting our Strategy & Business Operations

Are you able to offer your time on a pro bono basis to share ideas to help us to successfully execute our Vision 2030 and/or to offer guidance or some hands-on input with our Business Operations? This can be anything and everything and range from reviewing our Marketing or Fundraising strategies, helping us keep up to date with the latest technologies through introductions to products and hands-on multi-media activities such filming, editing etc., or making connections to key people/organisations.


Joining our Board Of Trustees or be a Trusted Advisor

We are looking for both new Board Members or Trusted Advisors to help us continue to grow DanceSyndrome and to continue make a significant impact on society, and to enable us to become financially sustainable.


Raising Money and Awareness

Do you have ideas about activities that can raise much needed funds for DanceSyndrome? Could you organise a fundraising event? Could you be part of a fundraising committee? Do you know any local businesses that might like to support DanceSyndrome with fundraising, sponsorship, free space for meetings/events, or other in-kind ways.

Or could you spread the word about DanceSyndrome in the Community at events, or distributing leaflets and posters

All volunteering roles come with full training and support. 

All volunteers will be required to go through a recruitment process and have a DBS check. 

For further information, to ask any questions or to put yourself forward for any of our volunteering opportunities, please email our Managing Director, Julie Nicholson on julie@dancesyndrome.co.uk or simply fill out the form on this page and we’ll be in touch.
